Improved Bulk Export, Xporter Reports and Structure screens

There is now a button to download the generated document, instead of a link inside of the success message.
It looks like this:

 

Faster Xray integration

You have reported some performance issues regarding to Xray integration. Changes were implemented to improve Xporter performance when large amounts of data are loaded from Jira and Xray.
Also, some changes were done regarding to Test Set Status, Text Execution Overall Execution Status and Test Plan Overall Execution Status. We highly recommend that you to review our documentation on Xray integration.

 

Improved integration with Tempo Timesheets

As you know, Tempo Timesheets have custom fields (for example, as Account field or an Overtime field) to log work.
These have multiple types of work attributes such like input fields, drop-down lists and checkbox. Xporter now allows you to export each attribute you have defined on your work log entry.
There will be a pop-up where you will be able to add the work log and the defined attributes.

Then, a new template will be added to define which attributes you want to get on the report:

The expected result will have all the information defined in the log work registry.

This new level of integration between Xporter and Tempo gives you more information and allows you to customize reports according to their needs.

 

General improvements and bug fixes

Routine improvements were implemented, and minor bugs were solved.
